Poll: Even Liberal New Yorkers Oppose Welcoming Syrian Refugees


A Siena College poll shows that despite Governor Andrew Cuomo’s stated support of Syrian refugees settling in New York, even liberal New Yorkers are not on board with the refugee program.

The poll of likely voters shows overall support for Syrian immigration is merely 39%, while opposition stands at 52%.

Fifty percent of Democrats support Syrian refugees coming to the country, with 41% in opposition.

Fifty percent of independents oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S.

The same poll shows support for Governor Cuomo is at 51%.
